While all waste should be stored in the appropriate containers before disposal, the safe storage of sharps and similar materials is of particular importance – due to the health and safety risk associated with this waste type. For example, if not stored correctly, those handling or disposing of the sharps waste could be at risk if the products cut, scrape, or pierce their skin. This risk is intensified if the sharps have come into contact with any infectious materials.

There are various sharps bins available, depending on the type of waste you are producing. Typically, these products are colour-coded to make it easier for the waste to be appropriately segregated. At Divert, we can provide you with:

Orange-Lidded Sharps Bins.

Sharps bins with orange lids are designed to store non-pharmaceutical sharps (i.e. sharps that have not been used within a healthcare setting). This could include:

Tattoo needles.
Piercing needles.
Staples/Stationary products.

Yellow-lidded sharps bins.

Sharps bins with yellow lids are designed for use in medical facilities, such as doctor surgeries and hospitals. They should be used for any sharps waste that has come into contact with medical waste. This could include:

Hypodermic needles.
Insulin pens.
Pre-filled syringes.
Infusion sets.

Sharps bins are also used to store other forms of hazardous waste that are not necessarily sharp but require secure and leak-proof storage. This includes:

Red-lidded Sharps Bins.
Sharps bins with red lids are designed to store medical waste items such as:

Anatomical waste.
Blood bags.
Body parts & organs.

Blue-lidded Sharps Bins.
Sharps bins with blue lids are designed to store medical waste items such as:

Face masks
Expired pharmaceuticals
Surplulous medications

Purple-lidded Sharps Bins.
Sharps bins with purple lids are designed to store cytotoxic and cytostatic waste products, such as:

Contaminated PPE & disposable garments
Medicinal vials
Blister packs
